    Install of PAC 200 for rear battery isolation.

    Finally installed the isolator to separate the rear battery from the front. Decided to mount the PAC on the inside. I put it under the second row seat.

    Here is the fuse panel with the secondary line added.


    Here is the ground for the PAC 200.


    Here is under the driver seat before and after.



    Here is the PAC 200 installed under the second row.


    Here is the PAC 200 fully installed.


    The PAC 200 is connected to the ignition wire. I was thinking about connecting it to the PC ignition, but if I decide not to use the PC, the second battery will not charge. So to the direct ignition it is. Also if I decided I need extra battery time, I can use the key to activate the PAC 200 and provide longer battery time while sitting.

    Decided to keep working on the Car PC. Even though the status of my truck is not known. I ordered the Mini-Pac units. These are what will simulate the keyboard strokes for the KVMP switches.



    These will allow me to create my own buttons for the arm rests.

    Got the Mini-Pac units in. They are a lot smaller then I expected, which is a good thing.



    I then plugged them into my PC, it sees it as a keyboard. Installed the software for the programming of the keys. Mapped out Up, Left and Right to the new following keys Enter, S and CTRL. I decided to put it on the control stick area because I noticed that when I set it up on other buttons, there is a delay between button presses, something the KVMP will not like. So by mapping it where it is, the key strokes have no lag at all. Once I did the mapping, I saved my project then hit program device. It configured in less then 1 second. I then simply unplugged one unit and went to the next and the next and the next. Only took a total of 15 seconds. Thanx to JustChat for recommending these units.



    All I have to do now is build the circuit boards for the arm rest. The control boards will have 3 buttons (for KVMP), an audio port for headphones, a toggle switch (for USB port PC assignment) and a USB port. That should be a fun project.

    The Tobiathin Core

    I decided to name my Car PC after my departed dog Tobiathin. So now its called the Tobiathin Core. I installed the Mini-Pacs on a board, then added a hinge to it so I can easily move it to get access to the PC ports under it.

    Tobiathin Multizone Aspect Test.

    Decided to try out the Multi Zone aspect of the TC today. I wanted to see if a 300 watt PSU can safetly power the whole thing. Looks like it can. Technically the PSU is 280 watts. The system came right on, all devices installed quickly and left it on for almost 2 hours with no issues.

    Here are some pictures of the install. Most of it has been tested and is working. I disconnected some stuff in the pictures because I am starting to get the install ready for the car.

    The pictures are pretty self explanatory.



    Here is it installed in the car. The fit was not what I expected so I am going to lift the whole thing, adding more height, but the KEMP wires will be tuckable. I plan on building a wall that goes from side to on one end. It will be permanent and not removable. The other side (trunk entrance) will have a removable hatch to get to the car pc.

    Today I ordered a 5.25 HDD converter. Basically it goes into a 5.25 slot and holds four 2.5 HDD in it. I tried to make one on my own but it did not feel secure. This one is better and made of metal. The MZ setup uses 4 HDD, and then the DZ uses one SSD. I plan to simply velcro the SSD to the top of the metal bracket and call it a day.

    Today I am going to buy industrail strength velcro and start attaching devices to their new homes. Stuff like wifi adapter, access point, VGA splitter, hubs, etc will all be married to their new home. The only one I am not sure about is GPS. In the past, anytime the GPS is near the wifi, it takes super long to get a lock, and when it finally does, I'm bouncing all over the map!
